Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, Calif., plans to build a $58 million neurosciences center with 50 beds, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.
The Sharp Grossmont Hospital Neurosciences Center will treat a range of conditions, including cancerous tumors of the head, neck and spine and blood clots in the brain that can cause strokes.
"Having a singular focus for these dedicated beds will allow our nursing staff, our physicians, our physical therapists, our pharmacists and others all to focus on neuroscience," Scott Evans, the hospital's CEO, told the publication.
The center will include a 16-bed intensive care unit, with the remaining beds reserved for patients with less severe neurological conditions.
The Grossmont Healthcare District provided a $4 million matching grant for the project. The funds will be released in $1 million increments as the Grossmont Hospital Foundation raises $10 million toward construction, and the balance will be borrowed.
Construction is expected to begin in the fall.
